Renowned Television Creators Amy Sherman-Palladino and Daniel Palladino Sign Multi-Year Overall Deal with Amazon Studios

Emmy-nominated Executive Producers of new Amazon Original Series The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel to develop television projects exclusively for Prime Video

SEATTLE - Sep. 25, 2017 - (NASDAQ: AMZN) - Amazon today announced that critically-acclaimed multi-hyphenates Amy Sherman-Palladino and Daniel Palladino (Gilmore Girls) have entered a multi-year overall deal with Amazon Studios. Sherman-Palladino and Palladino will develop television projects that will add to their unprecedented two-season greenlight of upcoming Amazon Original Series The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, which debuts this fall on Prime Video. The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel pilot, currently available for all Amazon customers at amazon.com/maisel, has garnered an average customer rating of 4.9, with 93% 5-star reviews.

"Amy and Dan are brilliant. Everything they create has such an incredible vision behind it. On top of that, they're wonderfully funny and smart people. Also, Amy has the best hats in show business," said Joe Lewis, Head of Comedy, Drama and VR, Amazon Studios. "We're excited about the next two seasons of The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel with them and, with this deal, we can't wait to do a lot more together."

"The team at Amazon has allowed us to have Dwight Eisenhower and John Kennedy as our presidents for the next few years and for that we are eternally grateful," said Sherman-Palladino and Palladino. "Amazon is the future of television and we are thrilled to tag along for the ride."

The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, written and directed by Sherman-Palladino, and executive produced by Sherman-Palladino and Palladino, stars Rachel Brosnahan (House of Cards) as Miriam "Midge" Maisel, a 1958 New York City woman who has everything she's ever wanted - the perfect husband, two kids, and an elegant Upper West Side apartment perfect for hosting Yom Kippur dinner. But her perfect life suddenly takes an unexpected turn and Midge discovers a previously unknown talent - one that changes her life forever. She charts a course that takes her from her comfortable life on Riverside Drive, through the basket houses and nightclubs of Greenwich Village as she storms the world of stand-up comedy... a course that will ultimately lead her to a spot on Johnny Carson's couch. The series also stars Michael Zegen (Boardwalk Empire) as Midge's husband Joel Maisel, Alex Borstein (Family Guy) as Susie Myerson, Golden Globe winner and three-time Emmy winner Tony Shalhoub (Monk) as Midge's father Abe Weissman, and Marin Hinkle (Two and a Half Men) as Midge's mother Rose Weissman.

Amy Sherman-Palladino began her career on Roseanne during the show's third season. During her four seasons on Roseanne, Sherman-Palladino was nominated for Emmy and Writers Guild Awards and was honored with a Peabody. In 2000, Sherman-Palladino created the beloved television series Gilmore Girls. As creator, writer and executive producer, she brought to life the engaging story that earned widespread critical acclaim, with TIME magazine listing Gilmore Girls among its "100 Best TV Shows of All Time."

Among later projects for Sherman-Palladino was the Fox comedy The Return of Jezebel James, starring Parker Posey, and the ABC Family dance drama Bunheads, starring Sutton Foster. 2016 brought the highly anticipated return of Gilmore Girls to Netflix as a four-part miniseries. Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life reunited much of the original cast, tracing the characters' lives across each season: Winter, Spring, Summer and Fall. Sherman-Palladino served as executive producer, writer and director alongside her husband and longtime collaborator, writer/producer/director Daniel Palladino.

Emmy Award nominee Daniel Palladino broke into series television in 1989, spending three years on the ABC hit Who's the Boss? starring Tony Danza, Judith Light and Alyssa Milano. Palladino spent two years in the mid-1990s on Roseanne, serving as a writer, co-executive producer, and then executive producer. In 2000 he began a half-dozen years on Gilmore Girls, writing some of its most popular episodes and eventually segued into directing, guiding the ship on six episodes. He went on to serve in producing roles on such original series as The Return of Jezebel James and the dance drama Bunheads.

Just prior to and for a time concurrent with Gilmore Girls, Palladino was Executive Producer and show runner of the Fox animated hit Family Guy for its initial two seasons, earning an Emmy nomination for Outstanding Animated Program for its debut season. More recently, from 2012-2013, he returned to Family Guy as a consulting producer. In 2016, Palladino helped navigate the return of Gilmore Girls to Netflix, writing and directing two of the four installments for Gilmore Girls: A Year In The Life. Palladino served as Executive Producer, writer and director alongside his wife, series creator Amy Sherman-Palladino.

Sherman-Palladino and Palladino are represented by Creative Artists Agency (CAA) and attorney Jeanne Newman.
